clean and modern hotel centrally located. However, standard room is very small with no wardrobe. Bathroom not equiped with basic toiletries such as tooth brush, which would be expected from a 4 star hotel. Staff was friendly. Recommended for a short stay.

A very lovely hotel only about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Oslo. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and spacious and it would score 5 out of 5 if the selection at breakfast was replenished more often. If breakfast is advertised until a certain time then it would be nice for all items... More

Thank you for your important feedback - without these we are not getting any better. We work every day to meet our guests' needs. Most days we manage it perfectly - but sometimes we are unable to live up to either our own or your expectations. That is why feedback is extremely important. Only then we will be getting better....

It's hard to find fault with our stay. The staff were really lovely and efficient. Everything was very clean and the breakfast choice varied and large. We'll be recommending the hotel to anybody going to Oslo.

We stayed at the Scandic Vulkan both at the beginning and end of our trip to Norway + Sweden in the summer of 2015. The hotel is modern and comfortable, and had all the usual conveniences, including plenty of power outlets for electronic devices. At least during our stay, there was no parking available for our rental car except at... More

It's a little bit out of the centre of town but handy for the bus, which is only a five minute run to the main shopping and tourist areas. If you're arriving from the central train or bus station the taxi fare is around £12. Good breakfast but sometimes seating can be a little tricky, especially for a larger group.... More

Stayed for 3 days. Nice hotel, well located. About 15 minutes walk from downtown and also the pier at Akker Brygge, a great place for an evening drink and dine. The rooms are pretty no frills. Functional, but zero extras. You get a bed, bath, TV and a view. No wardrobes even. So took some getting used to. But the... More

The rooms are beautiful and cosy, and the bathrooms are modern and super clean. We loved our night here - the atmosphere was great and the staff are friendly. The breakfast buffet was awesome - not the usual hotel breakfast! It is in the perfect spot too. Definitely recommend the Scandic Vulkan.
